Notes:

Correspondence from Benjamin Silliman to John Torrey, dated 1819-1848, primarily discussing issues related to the production of Silliman's American Journal of Science and Arts. Through the years Silliman's letters also frequently touch on chemistry and mineralogy, and the activities of mutual friends and acquaintances. He makes frequent references people not readily identified, such as "Dr. Me.," "Mr. Camman and his ores" (possibly Albert Cammann), "Mr. Barnes" (possibly D.H. Barnes), "Dr. Smith," "Mr. Bowen," "Lane" (possibly Ephraim Lane), "Dr. Johnson," "Mr. Wyatt," and "Dr. McMurtine."
